This website is a tribute and to honour my late father John Hobbs.
Amongst other things it is going to include audio recordings in his own words, of which we made many hours in preparation for a book. Having recently spent several days listening to them, the first time in fact since we made them in 2008, it reminded me what an extraordinary story he had to tell which I have chosen to share. Over the next few weeks I will gradually be uploading it piece by piece.
I have been overwhelmed by everyone's positive responses and support of this site. I welcome anyone to get in touch with their own stories and photos which I shall post if appropriate.
Many thanks to you all,
